Bill & Giuliana Rancic Open Up About Breast Cancer Announcement


Giuliana Rancic announced she's been diagnosed with breast cancer this morning on "Today" -- and is now saying she was "a nervous wreck" over sharing the news.

In a new interview with E! News, the reality TV star/host says she made the announcement because she realized she has "an amazing platform" to help people.

Of her "Today" appearance, her husband, "Apprentice" winner Bill Rancic, says "I think she was a lot stronger than I thought because up until this morning, anytime she ever said the word 'cancer' she would start crying."

He adds, "Her goal was to send a message to the young girls out there and I don't think it could have gone any better. I thought it was a beautiful segment, it was real."

Watch the entire interview on E! News tonight 7:00pm and 11:30pm ET/PT.

I am really sorry to read this. I am a one year breast cancer survivor - Stage 3 - and it's a tough fight, but she is a strong lady and can do it. She is a survivor!

Heartbreaking! I was just stunned when I got up today and saw this. I wonder if the IVF hormones triggered it.

Doesn't matter. I know she wouldn't go back and change that. I'm sending her the courage to get through it and a hug for Bill. They are in for a long hard haul but my money is on these two to beat it.

Love you G. Stay strong.

This is unfortunate. There are a lot of cancer support groups, especially in L.A., that could be of tremendous emotional help. As she and her husband said, she is really very lucky this was caught early and the prognosis is good. Helping others now may be the best medicine.
